    Now there's one I don't think I've ever seen before. 

     

    Very nice paint job on her.:winkthumbs:

    She’s an interesting one, and I think she is one of their later releases, after Ral Partha became Iron Wind Metals, but I’m not sure, likewise maybe she’s a Ral Partha Import. I always stick my photos into the Lost Mini Wiki, and of times they place the miniature where it belongs and I get a bit surprised as to its origin.

    I'm in love, what a pretty girl!

     

     

    She is in the market for a new man, most recent romantic partner having met his demise in a mysterious accident.  I think though she might still be  pretty emotionally attached to him though, as she is still wearing him.

    Looking great!  My only advice:  The last one has a tassel on her spear shaft.  The color is too close to the spear color, so it gets lost a little.  I’d have painted it green to match the shield, and set it apart from the shaft, while still tying in with the rest of the mini.

    Yeah, I kind of agree after having seen it, I was going for a light greenish, but should have more contrast with a deeper green or even a blue.  Of course now that I've finished I'm kind of lazy, so probably unlikely that I go back and actually fix it.

    I don’t recall a boxed set for these guys.  According to the Lost Minis Wiki (first link), the elf maiden was sculpted by Dennis Mize, which looks reasonable.  The second link does show a few “omnibus” collections of the Wizards, Warriors and Warlocks figures in the 1980 catalog.  RP put together a bunch of “one each” mixed blister packs for roleplaying gamers, and I hadn’t realized that WWW had any.  

    I wonder if by boxed he meant a blister? If she was indeed sculpted by Dennis Mize, which stylistically makes sense, then sorry for the error! It's amazing in any case, whether it be Meier or Mize how much their skill levels increased in such a small amount of time!

    Amazing, the detail they could put on such tiny figs! And amazing painting!

    Yeah, Tom Meier did some great work back then, and even more incredible nowadays!

     All from the same box set, E200 Elves, from the Wizards, Warriors and Warlocks line.

     

     

    Thanks Mad Jack, I wasn't aware they all originally came in one set!

    I meant more that your freehand was straighforward and in the theme of fantasy from then 😉 

    Thanks Iridil, not to worry, and I very much appreciate it!

    I particularly like the color on the archer’s cloak.

     

    You’ve gotten these from Ral Partha Legacy, I see…I hadn’t realized that they have added some of the goblins as well.

     

    I didn’t own any of these elves BITD for some reason, although I was around then.  I acquired seven or eight blister packs of them in a store in the Los Angeles area on a business trip around 1990, but there were no archers, so I was glad when Iron Wind was finally convinced to dig into their mold archives and put them into production again.

    Here a few vintage ones are standing off an attack by equally vintage goblins aided by a Prince August orc and a Ral Partha AD&D Cyclops-kin in 2013…

    Yup, trying to get them all painted up for their catalogue! I've got the rest of the elves as well, trying to get through them all before the end of the year!

     

    Trying to remember, I think I started out using Camouflage green for the archer's cloak and then some browns, deeper greens for shading and I think I went up to lemon yellow with the highlights, or maybe white, I don't even remember any more.

     

    Great photo of those old school minis!  I hope to get some of their goblins as well some day.

  6. Hello Reapervites!

    So here are three more Wood Elf figures, been working on a group of these and getting them finished little by little.

     

    With them all, want them to be kind of the same but a little bit of variety, so tried to vary clothing colors and hair colors, but keeping it all in natural and autumn colors, browns, greens and oranges/yellows.  So anyhoos, here are three more:

    Tried to some freehand that would tie in on the shield and banner.  My freehand is sometimes not the greatest, but oh well, give me something to want to learn better!

     

    So enjoy!
